We’re Crowdfunding – Hosts 2023

Own a part of a global experiential responsible travel company

We are launching our second crowdfunding campaign so that you, our amazing hosts, can get involved and join our journey.  We have already raised £300,000 towards our target of £500,000 and we are now opening up our raise, inviting you to join in.

This is your chance to get in early and have a small share in a growing business with huge global ambitions. A business committed to creating better travel experiences, working with passionate and driven local partners delivering itineraries packed with authentic local and unique experiences.

Experiential, Adventure and Wellness travel is growing, travellers are more interested in exploring , discovering and connecting with locals on their travels and Not in the Guidebooks is primed and ready to take advantage of this growing trend.

By investing just a small amount you get to be a shareholder of our business, with exciting and ambitious plans to expand.  You’ll join our community of responsible local partners, and benefit from amazing rewards. You’ll get money off your own travel with Not In The Guidebooks, and all the money you invest will be split between investing in the growth of the business and in promoting your experiences and your destination. We’d love for you to be a part of our journey so we can work even more closely together for mutual success.

Pre-Register today. This will not commit you to anything. It simply means that when shares are released for sale, you’ll get access first if you’d like to invest. Click here to register and gain exclusive access to our crowdfunding campaign.

Our Vision

Our Vision

Local travel is not easy to find or easily accessible for most travellers, especially those looking for private travel and wanting to get out of the main hot spots.

At Not In The Guidebooks, we’ve partnered with some amazing local hosts who take travellers off the beaten track, to places they know and love and offer activities they are passionate about and often unique to the area they are in.

Our vision is to make local experiential and responsible travel accessible in a way that fits into the travellers agenda. We work with most of the UK travel agency groups as well as partners such as Wanderlust and The Sunday Times to access experiential travellers.

We are making local travel accessible so anyone can experience its benefits, as well as the benefits it brings to local communities and the planet.

Local authentic experiences – made easy.

We are inviting you to be part of our journey

Our crowd-funding project with investment company, Seedrs, looks to offer small investments for our local partners, travel agents and our community of experiential travellers, starting from just £127.

The money will be used to build on our technical platform giving local hosts a much easier way to promote their experiences, manage their bookings and communicate with their guests.  We will use the funds to build inspirational content and to make more noise with both travel agents and our direct customers.

As an investor, you will become a shareholder of Not In The Guidebooks and have a say in the way we shape for the future. And for investments of £1,000 or more we are pledging half the investment will be used to promote your itineraries specifically.

So what's in it for you?

As well as becoming a shareholder, we have also set up a reward scheme. Just our way of saying thank you.
